Teachers' Perceptions of Standardized Achievement Tests.
Urdan, Timothy C.; Paris, Scott G.
Educational Policy, v8 n2 p137-56 Jun 1994
Summarizes a study surveying 153 K-8 teachers to determine their attitudes about standardized achievement tests, tests' usefulness, perceptions of how others view them, and perceptions of how best to prepare students for them. Results indicate that teachers felt negatively about the tests, and many engaged in practices that threatened the tests' validity. Implications for education and testing are discussed. (MLH)
